Summer 2018 Panther Internship Students
Panther Industries is pleased to introduce the new students that were selected to participate in our current internship program. These individuals will be participating in real-world business experiences – from engineering to manufacturing to marketing – to support their current and continuing education efforts.
Panther is honored to partner with local schools and have these incredible students work with our company.
Please check out what they have to say so far!
Computer Aided Design (CAD)
"My name is Charles. I’m actually very interested in cars, so I would like to go for an automotive design or mechanical engineering degree. I took a CAD (Computer Aided Design) class recently at school, and Mr. Shall, a teacher there, told me I could get an internship at Panther. So I decided to look into it and I got the internship, and now I am using CAD to basically do everything that I would have done in the automotive world, except it’s in a different setting and I’m getting exposure to the CAD world as well and everything they do with it."
Charles is a Senior at STEM School
"My name is Ethan and I’ve been the augmented reality intern here at Panther for about 5 weeks now. I’ve been utilizing augmented reality for around three years, and now I’m developing an augmented reality support app for Panther."
Ethan is a Senior at STEM School
"I’m Henry and I’m one of the service interns at Panther. I’m really interested in mechatronics which is the industrial application of robots, and automation as well. It’s really cool being able to learn how these machines work, about the pneumatics and mechanics of it, learning how applicators are made, how to apply labels, about vacuum sensors and vacuum boxes and stuff."
Henry is a Sophomore at STEM School
"My name is Josh. I’m completely new to this. I really haven’t had any experience with hands-on work before, and I joined Panther to sort of get that new experience in my life, and also to understand machines better and become more of a handy person when I go off to college. I’ve always been fascinated with machinery, and the way things run in a business and production line, so Panther has really given me an outlet to experience that first hand."
Josh is a graduate of Rock Canyon HS
"I’m Michal. I’m a very avid programmer and naturally I really like working with computers and building them as well. I decided to join up with Panther as I really wanted to get more working experience inside a business. It might be a bit surprising that I ended up doing Marketing, but the role actually requires a lot of experience with website design, social media, and graphic design, all of which being something I’m familiar with and enjoy doing. I’ve only been with Panther for a few days, but I hope the internship continues to give me new challenges to tackle every day."

"My name is Rois, I play baseball and go to Dakota Ridge High School. I decided to get interviewed for the internship at Panther because I was interested in all the machinery and how it works. I’ve always wondered how they put the printers together and stuff like that. The internship is going pretty good actually and I’m learning a lot, and I’m having a lot of fun too. I’m basically assembling print-and-apply machines. I’m not putting together all of them, for example I’m not doing the wiring but instead I’m putting together the main plates and the mechanical parts of it."

Research and Development
"I'm Shaun. I have always enjoyed automating and making different devices talk to each other, and so I really enjoy the Panther internship. I get to go up to the research and development room and make different machines cooperate, figuring out how exactly to make them communicate so they can automate tasks, which would otherwise take a much longer time for us to complete."
Shaun is a graduate of STEM School
"I’m Truman. I’ve always liked making things and knowing how it works, so getting to work at Panther where I get to build machines, and even learn how to program them is really cool. Just getting to see the other side of the machinery I’ve always been intrigued with is definitely a great experience."
